  • Utilization of technology including ultrasound and infrared to enhance vascular visibility and cannulation for central, peripheral and arterial lines
  • Strengthen difficult airway management for the pediatric patient by incorporating different airway devices
  • PBLD sessions
  • Earn four Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits


Vascular Access Objectives:

  • Develop a plan to approach patients with difficult vascular access
